Yes , Mum took pity on me & finally finished the zip. It’s been quite a while that Betty has been wearing it & I have been taking photos of shawls draped around her. I’m not even sure where the pattern is?? Tomorrow I think I will wear it to school.
😁Thanks 🙏 Mum 😘🌹🌹
Here are the little ‘punk’ dudes, they are certainly living up to their woolly bear name, aren’t they. Don’t worry I did give them more food. They are busy eating all the dandelions in my garden, it’s getting harder to find some. My garden will soon be dandelion free.
All the High brown fritillaries are now pupae
They have been moved to their net cage ready for hatching. So watch this space.
I’m getting tempted to order some more caterpillars, I will have to see what’s on offer & what I can easily feed.
Finally done February’s instalment , I’m expecting May’s to drop into my in box later today.
I will be catching up with this project in the summer holidays & working on it as I feel like it.
Firstly the High Brown fritillary caterpillars
By Sunday evening we have two making silk hammock on the lid of their container.
By Monday morning they were hanging downwards. I was privileged to see the first one form part of its pupae case. It was fascinating to see it swing round & round. I still do not know how it did not fall off.
On Tuesday we have two pupae & by today I have others starting the process.
I also have a second bunch of caterpillars, garden tiger Cana woolly bears ( moth), I have had these for around two weeks
They are so furry, I can see why they are known as woolly bears.
Another one finished. I’m now going across to the other side & working my way round, to join back up
Here’s my progress so far.

They are growing fast now & eating loads. They have just been dormant for a couple of days, shedding part of their skin, then growing much larger very quickly.
Here’s my progress over the Easter holidays, I think I’ve done rather well, I’ve almost finished my homework. Back to school tomorrow ( I got an extra day , it’s my day off) & my exam classes are all doing tests so that will be probably it until my next lesson. I’m really pleased with it so far.
